Strange. The output of client_ldap used to be more verbose on previous releases.
Just found out that you can trace since R8 (TG0052) with these commands in telnet session
pbm_tuner output-tty=`tty`
pbm_tuner trace-level=all
If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

What type is the LDAP server?
Authentication is not working with all LDAP Servers (especially Microsoft)
Better way to analyze:
su root
tcpdump -s 1500 -w /tmpd/ldap.pcap
=> Try a search
Stop tcpdump and open /tmpd/ldap.pcap with Wireshark using filter "LDAP"

It's probably long since too late to help the OP, but perhaps others will profit from this answer: Just glancing at his config I think I see the problem: The User Identification value almost certainly will need to be the full DN of the account with which you're trying to log into the LDAP, which will be something like this:


Now, I'm just taking a wild guess for the actual value, for the real login DN you'll have to consult the LDAP, and probably whoever is responsible for it.
